Fatima College students help schools recover from flooding

In response to the recent flooding across the country, the Lower 6 students at Fatima College decided to assist primary schools directly affected.

The students conducted a ‛Flood Relief Drive’ appealing to fellow students to help with donations. They organised and packed 50 heavy duty buckets filled with cleaning supplies and tools.

With support from Principal (Ag) Ronald Cooper, advice from former principal Fr Gregory Augustine CSSp, and the assistance of the Catholic Education Board of Management (CEBM), the buckets and supplies were sent to La Lune RC in Moruga, Mayo RC in the Couva /Tabaquite/Talparo Corporation, Mayaro RC and North Oropouche RC School.

“We hope that in some small way we can get these schools back up and operating, so that the students can return to their centres of learning” said one student.

CEBM CEO Sharon Mangroo said, “ I am grateful to the young men for their thoughtfulness and their effort to ‘walk together’ with the persons in our community who are experiencing difficulty because of the floods.”
